If you want the tastiest wake and bake ever, a company called Organicares has invented a chocolate hazelnut spread made with medical marijuana. The tastiest condiment ever now gets you fucked up, too.
Scientists have known that cacao beans had been used by pre-Columbian American cultures for a long time, mainly as a beverage, but it now looks like that the use of chocolate in the New World is much older than we thought. It may have been used as a sauce in Mexico as far back as 2500 years ago.
Chocolate is possibly one of the greatest gifts from nature ever, but if you’re counting calories, it’s not the best snack choice out there. Scientists from Japan have come up with a wonderfully simple solution— replace the cane sugar with fruit juice and voila— chocolate that tastes the same with half the fat and calories.
In a piece of chocolate art that would certainly have pleased the Mayan gods, Qzina Specialty Foods created a gigantic Mayan pyramid entirely out of chocolate. The whole thing weighs in at nine tons and probably hasn’t seen any human sacrifice. Probably.
